Storage devices are aimed at Mac users with Thunderbolt ports

Western Digital has announced a new storage device called the My Book Thunderbolt Duo Dual-Drive Storage System. This is the first Western Digital external hard drive to use Thunderbolt technology.
 
Western Digital says that the new external storage drive offers several areas of performance with double safe data protection, fast data transfer rates, a customized to drive storage system with RAID 0, 1, and JBOD options. The drives inside the enclosure are customer serviceable and there are two Thunderbolt ports that allow daisy chaining of multiple My Book Thunderbolt Duo storage devices.
 
Western Digital says that these high-speed storage devices are perfect for any computer with a Thunderbolt port and are ideal for video or music editing, 3-D rendering and other high-definition graphics intensive uses.
 
The My Book Thunderbolt Duo is available now online and in select retail stores with a 4 TB unit selling for $599.99 and the 6 TB unit selling for $699.95.
 
These drives are the latest in a series of expensive Thunderbolt accessories that have hit the market. Back in January Belkin unveiled expensive Thunderbolt laptop docks.

Only an Apple user would pay for something like this. Even if thunderbolt ports were available for PC.
